According to the engine numbers it is a 1987 model.Both the side mounted plastic gas tanks are missing. The brackets for the tanks can be seen in the photos. There are also brackets on the frame just in front of the rear wheels , between the tank brackets and the tires. Anyone know what they are for?The seat is also gone. The engine turns. I'm thinking about buying it.

Looks like my neighbors old one that was a dump body/wheelbarrow like rear on it. His was pretty big engine like 15hp briggs I'm thinking, and the seat is up high. They use it constantly, more for just moving plants and things around not so much mowing.

The steering takes a bit of getting used to, but mine cuts really nice. Works well to cut grass on a flat lawn, but slopes are a bit tricky.

 

The brackets might be a support or a hinge system for the bagger hood.
